Description

New York Times bestselling author Richard Kadrey's fifth Sandman Slim adventure.

James Stark, aka Sandman Slim, has lost the Qomrama Om Ya, an all-powerful weapon from the banished older gods. Older gods who are returning and searching for their lost power.

The hunt leads Stark to an abandoned shopping mall infested with tribes of squatters. Somewhere in this kill zone is a dead man with the answers Stark needs. All Stark has to do is find the dead man, recover the artifact, and outwit and outrun the angry old gods—and natural-born killers—on his tail.

But not even Sandman Slim is infallible, and any mistakes will cost him dearly.

        "Hot damn, a new Sandman Slim novel! I will fight you for it if I have to.Yes, the series is just that good (P.S., I will fight VERY VERY DIRTY)." — John Scalzi

        "A deft mixture of urban fantasy and light comedy, the fifth Sandman Slim novel is sure to appeal to the author's growing fan base, not to mention readers of such writers as Jim Butcher, P. N. Elrod, and F. Paul Wilson." — Booklist

        "One of the great horror setups of all time.... If there's one thing Kill City Blues demonstrates, it's that Kadrey's still got a ton of material for Sandman Slim. I can't wait to read it all." — Cory Doctorow, BoingBoing.com

        "The series is part fantasy, part gothic horror, part crime noir. It's filled with knowing winks about pop culture and told at a breathless pace that can't be bothered with actual chapters." — San Diego Union-Tribune

        "We can savor every insight from a grand master of the blunt exposition." — Locus

        James Stark (that is, Sandman Slim) finds himself in Los Angeles, having turned his back on hell. But the older gods are after a weapon he managed to misplace, and for help he must find a dead man somewhere in an alternate L.A. Sandman's in good shape, though; film rights have been optioned, the last title in the series was a New York Times best seller, and previous titles have received best book and Indie Next nods. With a 75,000-copy first printing.

        James Stark, the once-dead nephilim (half-human, half-angel) who spent 11 years in Hell as the Devil's contract killer, before he took a turn being the Devil, has recently returned to the land of the living. He's hoping for a (relatively) stress-free life back on Earth, but there's this one tiny problem: the Qomrama Om Ya, a weapon of almost unimaginable power designed by one bunch of gods to kill another bunch of gods, has gone missing, and unless Stark (aka Sandman Slim) can find it, the world could be in store for all sorts of mayhem. All right, it's not such an insignificant problem after all. In fact, for most people it would be a mind-boggling, panic-inducing problem, but if you know Stark, you know he's a pretty cool dude. A deft mixture of urban fantasy and light comedy, the fifth Sandman Slim novel is sure to appeal to the author's growing fan base, not to mention readers of such writers as Jim Butcher, P. N. Elrod, and F. Paul Wilson.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2013, American Library Association.)
